Goofs

In the first miniseries, A Woman of Substance, Emma's parents, Elizabeth and Jack, died one year apart, ages 40 and 45 respectively, long before World War I, and long before Emma's first marriage. However, the death dates of Elizabeth and Jack were moved forward by about 15 years in "Hold the Dream," and their respective ages at death were reduced by six years each, from age 40 to 34 in the case of Elizabeth Harte, and from age 45 to 39 in the case of father Jack Harte. Since the story in "Dream" is wholly dependent on the preceding story in "Substance," the date and age changes render the time lines almost impossible, and totally implausible. See more »

Watch "A Woman of Substance" first !!
17 August 2003 | by (Ile-de-France / Paris Region, France) – See all my reviews

This is a sequel to "A Woman of Substance" which should be watched first. Although slightly shorter in length it is just as entertaining in it's own way and once again, Deborah Kerr, Jenny Seagrove and Liam Neeson pull off magnificent performances. There are of course deaths and there are romances, the viewer follows all these with the same palpitations as during the first episode. The picture quality is slightly superior to that of "A Woman of Substance" where colours were a little washed out at times. If you liked the first episode, there's no doubt you'll like this one !!
